What’s Your Next Move?

At some point in life, most of us have struggled with the crossroad of “What’s my next step?” Or “Where do I go from here?” Facing this dilemma is scary and agonizing. The thought of the unknown makes us feel vulnerable, but that is precisely when you need to dig deep in your soul and put in the hard work at finding your pathway.

When you reach this impasse in your life now is the time to focus on what you can do and not give in to the obstacles standing in your way. Now is the time to flex your creative muscles and keep striving for what you want even after you have been beaten down. Now is the time to tap into your power of choice. You can choose to wallow in self-pity or take responsibility and keep moving forward. This is the perfect opportunity to wake up your conscious mind and replace negative thoughts with positive ones.

Enter the next phase of your journey with these three “E’s: Energy, Excitement and Endurance.

  1. Energy: Find the energy to take the time and figure out what you really want to do with your life.
  2. Excitement: Embrace the change and the excitement of the unknown. Take action and tap into your competitive side making it fun.
  3. Endurance: Exercise is a great release to keep pushing forward when all you want to do is give up.

So the next time you’re faced with this dilemma ~ stay prayerful, worry less, take calculated risks and develop a going forward mindset.

If you can believe it, the mind can achieve it” ~ Ronnie Lott

  1. Now…this subject matter really “Hits Home!” The three E’s are key to making the life changing adjustment that are needed. I think the 3 E’s are under the broader scope of “Perseverance.” The ability to fight through life’s dilemmas physically, mentally and spiritually is truly challenging. You learn about yourself when you do. James 1:12 “Blessed is the one that perseveres under trail, because having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised…” Keep writing!!


  2. Great read & motivation! I am in a rut. My comment is being very candid but perhaps someone can relate. I’m on the rebound of surviving breast cancer. I crossed that huge ordeal and I’m healed. Im thankful to God. However, Im drowning in debt from my medical bills to student loans. If, I happen to secure sustainable wages my income will be garnished. That is my dilemma to overcome. I need to get on my feet the 3 Es are my confirmations. Clearly, I must define “What’s Your Next Move”? Thanks for the “food for thought” my next move.
